    “Are you tired of living in a dictatorship yet?” Republican state Rep. Nino Vitale wrote in a post on Facebook Tuesday after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, announced the mask mandate. “This is what happens when people go crazy and get tested. STOP GETTING TESTED! It is giving the government an excuse to claim something is happening that is not happening at the magnitude they say it is happening.” Vitale called into question why the new order wouldn’t go into effect until Wednesday evening, saying “if this is such an urgent matter, why wait almost 30 hours? They make...

    The coronavirus does not cure heart attacks.. CLEVELAND, Ohio -“We know that we have many patients, staying at home suffering these heart attacks not seeking care,” said University Hospitals Cardiologist, Dr. Greg Stefano.

But that is a dangerous trend for heart patients. 64 year Andrew Gruber didn’t hesitate when he felt symptoms of a heart attack on April 16th. Muson EMS got to him within about 5 minutes, performed an EKG at the scene,...

Emergency rooms have about half the normal number of patients, and heart and stroke units are nearly empty, according to doctors at many urban medical centers. Some medical experts fear more people are dying from untreated emergencies than from the coronavirus.A recent paper by cardiologists at nine large medical centers estimated a 38...
